Skip to comments.CNN: Both Parties Think VA Is 'Political Bomb' For Obama (Video)
Posted on 05/29/2014 10:40:20 AM PDT by kingattax
CNNs Drew Griffin, one of the first reporters who took on the Veterans Administration hospital waiting time scandal, stated that the VA scandal was a "political bomb" that both parties believed the Obama administration was handling poorly in an appearance on CNN on Thursday.
Griffin cited the overflow of members of Congress who wanted to rail against the VA at a hearing last night as evidence that the scandal is a political crisis that's just getting worse and worse and worse.
In reference to the ongoing scandal, Griffin said this is a political bomb for the president, and both sides don't think he's handling it very well. He predicted that until Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki stepped down, the president would take more heat as more revelations about VA misconduct surfaced.

Screw the politicians...it is a nuclear bomb for Veterans!
“Screw the politicians...it is a nuclear bomb for Veterans!”
It took a long time for it to get this bad. No one noticed.
It’s merely a political football, and nothing will be fixed.
Someone set up us the bomb!
CNN got the message out to their 27 regular viewers.
Yeah. Veterans are dying for lack of care and our “Leaders” are worried about getting reelected since the cat got out of the bag.
And a preview of what’s to come with Obamacare
Barack Houssain bin Obummer could care less. This is his last term in office. He’ll just give the veterans his middle finger.
This is not something the Dems want because you do not want to mess with either the vets themselves or those who know them.
Please the next post down. Thank-you.
Ummmm, exactly HOW many years has Obama been President. Surely you’re not trying to blame Bush.... even democrats aren’t that crass...
No, this isn’t something the Dems wanted nor could have afforded with Obamascare already giving Dems the scoots. The two scandals are too closely connected healthcare issues. It’s almost as if the Dem Party built its reputation on the San Andreas Fault. The VA is the foreshock and Obamacare will be the most destructive main shock the party will ever suffer.
The VA is Single Payer.
It is the exemplar of Progressive’s end game for healthcare.
I am not the first to note this:
This scandal is getting traction because, unlike F&F or Benghazi, or IRS, it probably did NOT originate in the White House, so the press feels they can jump on it, in a weak way, of course.
Yep, and even it will outrage the low-info voters because if they are not vets themselves, they know of vets either by family, friendship, or work.
“Ummmm, exactly HOW many years has Obama been President. Surely youre not trying to blame Bush.... even democrats arent that crass...”
No, not Bush specifically, ALL of them. My niece has been a nurse at a VA facility for over 15 years. She does not have glowing things to say about the place she works. I got out in 81, and was told by more than a few that you only go to VA as a last resort.
The VA is the b*st*rd step child of the government.
Under Obama, we get stories about "how will this affect Obama?"
The truth is the exact opposite:
The responsibility for this particular scandal is diffused among very many people, many of them not at the very top.
For THAT reason this scandal is getting huge PR.
Responsibility for stuff like Bengazi is concentrated in the hands of a tiny view at the tippy-top and so coverage has been quashed.
Over the years, Doormat Republican Speaker Boehner has been able to fund all of the Democrats Commander in Chief Obamas Military decisions.
Speaker Boehner has thus been essential to helping Obama to lead from the bottom of a Socialist, Group Hug, Hell Hole.
Speaker Boehner should indeed be in line for a promotion by Arrogant Commander in Chief Obama.
Over the years, Boehner has doubled the taxpayer dollars sent to the failed Veterans Administration.
The rumor that a grateful, but still Arrogant, Obama is considering promoting Boehner to be in charge of the Veterans Administration has yet to be confirmed.
No. Obama’s black. No fault can ever be assigned, and his actions have no limitations whatsoever.
Not having glowing things to say and having monsters at the VA commit crimes like the ‘lists’ were are two different things. Your original comment was creepy - the issue on the table today is criminal action by democrats at the VA. It’s not about overall care.... which I’m sure is not as good as it should be.
Even now just last night, Montel Williams, a veteran, RANTED against what has been going on.
What more do you people want from him?
That should have been WARNING SIGN.
The media called Reagan the Teflon POTUS.
But the real Teflon POTUS is Caliph Baraq.
These 27 are 22 invalid shut-inns who haven’t the ability to change the channel & 5 poor schmucks delayed for a flight in O’Hare.
If this were an (R) he would be looooong gone by now!
“But the real Teflon POTUS is Caliph Baraq.”
The big difference is that Obama’s teflon is now scratch and cracking.
It’s gonna be a tough 2.5 yrs for Baraq and Moose.
Golf and ultra luxe vacations, followed by a monster cash hoard from selling POTUS pardons.
Why is everybody calling for Shinseki to resign yet giving his boss a pass?
The real tough time is going to come starting in early November with a LOT of Dems loses.
“Not having glowing things to say and having monsters at the VA commit crimes like the lists were are two different things. Your original comment was creepy - the issue on the table today is criminal action by democrats at the VA. Its not about overall care.... which Im sure is not as good as it should be.”
I accept the correction.
The IRS scandal, however, leads straight to the White Hut. They won't touch that one with a ten-foot pole, because it could bring him down.
They're just distracting us. They don't really care about the vets. They're just toying with us.
I believe there are several “Time Bombs” out there—the worst are the ones that haven’t surfaced yet. In time Obama will be the most hated man in American—by the left and the right.
How many people will realize that government medicine, as represented by the poor care by the VA, is proof that socialized medicine or Medicaid for all is going to be just as bad?
It doesn’t matter what people thing. The feral government cancer has metastasized. From this point on its only goal is taking over more and more of the resources until the host dies.
” even democrats arent that crass...”
IMHO, they are. Harry Reid called the TEA party and Cliven Bundy supporters terrorists. They supported Obastard’s lie that you could keep your insurance, and they ridiculed the republican who tried to pass a bill to protect current insurance plans.
Next to muslims, democrats are the most worthless lying trash on the planet. Actually, they are American muslims, trying to force a fascist system on us, but their god is government.
So, if Obama can’t run medical care for 1% of the population how horrible will obamacare be?
You got that right. The one thing Obama has done is divide the country bigtime.
